Security

In the Discovery Hub architecture, the ODX storage is the central data repository for the entire organization. Employees are different, also in the data they should have access. For this reason, you can set up permissions to control access to data on the ODX storage in Discovery Hub.

You can define roles, add users and groups to these roles, and grant/deny the role access to data. You create the permission setup with rules, just like when you select data, set up incremental load etc. Each rule contains criteria for which schema, table and column names it applies to and whether the role should be granted or denied access.

Note: Azure Data Lake data storages support granting access on the table level, while SQL Server data storages support the column level as well. If you grant/deny access to a column, Discovery Hub will ignore the rule if the security setup is deployed to an Azure Data Lake data storage.
